2014 NFL Draft

Thought I'd start this discussion now...

not because in no way shape or form is this season done because of the two clunckers in the past three weeks against NFC West foes that have physically whooped us...

But while game play is still on...we can have a fresher look at the team as opposed till waiting for the offseason...

We've seen with the defense how getting younger players can make a huge difference rather than running out "trusted" veterans for another year...

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

This is a first attempt to mock what I'd like to see our draft look like if we finish as projected...

R1 OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee, 6-6/330
R2 LB Telvin Smith, Florida State, 6-2/224
R3 LB Jeremiah Attaochu, Georgia Tech, 6-3/242
R4 OL Gabe Jackson, Mississippi State, 6-3/340
R5 CB Antone Exum, Virginia Tech, 6-0/220
R6 RB Roderick McDowell, Clemson, 5-9/200
R7 Traded for Parys Haralson to 49ers for 2014 conditional seventh round pick

...I'd like to see us get younger, faster, stronger, cap-friendlier...

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Guess I should have put Kicker on the poll, but we all know that would get checked after today!?!

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

In no particular order and I have no idea who I'd draft, but: Tackle, ILB, OLB, Center, and perhaps Free Safety...

Mitch, do you think Vaccaro is capable as Free Safety?!? or would you rather see him at Strong Safety?!?

Hmmm, good question... Harper and Vaccaro could be interesting, but I'd rather another safety who could cover next to Kenny... He could probably play either spot no problem...

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Maybe we should draft another offensive tackle for depth reasons, but I don't think we need to draft one in the early rounds. We literally just drafted a left tackle last year that has a silly amount of upside. (Terron Armstead)
We should move forward with him imo.

What I think would be perfect is if Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix was still available when it is our time to choose our first round pick. I'm not sure how realistic it is to have him still available at the near-end of the first round though.

If Clinton-Dix is still available, I want to see us go: FS, ILB/OLB, OC.
If he isn't, then I think we should go: OLB, ILB, OC.
